Northridge uses need-based financial aid to make attendance possible for as many qualified students as possible. The process of applying for financial aid is separate from applying for admission to the school, because Northridge makes the two decisions independently. Grants of financial aid are based on the family’s financial need. If you would like to apply for financial aid, you should do so at the same time as you apply for admission to the school. Families who apply for financial aid receive priority in request for hosting international students. Learn more about the types of aid we offer below:
